SICARS is a nonprofit corporation whose mission is to preserve and revitalize the Hogg Hummock Community located on Sapelo Island, Georgia.


SICARS was founded in 1993 by Hogg Hummock resident and non-resident descendants who wanted to enhance the future of their community by educating all visitors to the island about the history. There will be increased awareness that Sapelo has existed as an African community for more than 208 years. SICARS was incorporated in 1994, has over 600 members, and continues to grow each year.
